Loved the series on TV so it's great to own this did. So funny and it really takes you back to those times.

Unlike many of the TV series that produced a spin off film this one is actually funny and well worth viewing more than once.

Bob is having a mid life crisis so wife Thelma suggests that they go away for a caravanning weekend to Northumberland - caravans being a well known cure for most of life's troubles apparently - together with Terry and his current Finnish girlfriend Chris.

Needless to say it's a catalogue of mishaps. Bob's marriage is in trouble resulting in him moving in with Terry who has been dumped and is back to his usual "sensitive" self. As with all 70's films the fashions are well worth a chuckle - Thelma sports a particularly fetching purple "fondu party" type dress which is borderline offensive.

There are some fantastic lines including one of my all time film favourites:
Terry to Bob who has just poured out his heart about feeling his life is falling apart - "do you want some coffee, I'd offer you a beer but I've only got 6"

You can't beat a bit of North Eastern humour!

Okay, let's be brutal - this is never going to challenge 'The Godfather' for Best Movie Of The Seventies. Actually, it may not make it into a Seventies' Top 100... even if we stipulate a 'Must Include At Least One Soft-Focus, Dewy-Eyed Shot Of Tyneside' clause in the selection criteria. But there's something bleakly compelling that arises from the pathos and despair of the lads' encroaching mid-life crises that makes The Likely Lads withstand many, many repeat viewings.

More than that, though, it's a time capsule allowing viewers of a certain age, a certain social class and a certain geographical disposition ('north of Watf**d') a wincingly nostalgic wallow in everything that was simultaneously glorious and godawful about mid-70's Britain. Today's under-16's should be made to watch it on a perpetual loop until they reject their iPhones in disgust and all start trading pithy quips in broad Geordie. "This is what used to pass for entertainment," we'll tell them, "before Ant and Dec went and ruined everything forever."

They'll thank us eventually.
